francisco has been a leader in our technology community and our technology economy across our country and now we get to continue to play a role in being a leader bringing technology solutions to improve the lives of our residents here in our city. it's been a privilege to work on this project and to lead this effort the last two years and look forward to bringing the broader vision of free wi-fi across san francisco in the next few years with all the partners behind me today. this has been a strong collaboration on behalf of a lot of partners. in particular, google, sf city, our recreation and park department as well as our department of technology, and i want to thank all of those involved. this project started a little over two years ago with a conversation i had with an old family friend from google. and i want to take a moment to thank the entire google team that worked on this project. it's been two years, so, it's touched a lot of desks and had a lot of approvals and in particular want to thank veronika bell who is here from google for stepping p. up. google is providing a finan

to the university of south florida's tampa bay technology incubator. incubators arm entrepreneurs with the resources needed for success. with a focus on life sciences, this incubator helps scientific entrepreneurs develop companies focusing on things like cancer-detection treatments and medical devices. "it's not just a location, it's more than just a building - it's the network, it's the people, it's the support, it helps them stay on track." nurturing and consulting entrepreneurs are the main goals of a business incubator, but giving them access to investors is equally vital. this was the case for sanberg, but getting in touch with her inner business woman, was also critical. "we're a bunch of neuroscientists that got together, what they primarily helped with us the most are marketing ideas, some of the slides, business plans, executive summaries and organization of that to better our package." cities like tampa, fla, that were hit hard by the recession,are embracing incubators as a way to fuel job growth. and with most incubators focusing on technology, those jobs are professional and high-payin
